The repeated refrain of “Teenage” emphasizes the overarching theme of the song, which is the search for identity and rebellion against authority.

The repeated phrase “Leave me alone, I don’t care about you” speaks to the tension between young people and the adults in their lives who may not understand or support their desires and dreams.


The second half of the song continues to emphasize the strength and wildness of youth, with the singer declaring that he is young, strong, and wild. These lyrics capture the passion and energy of youth that can so easily be stifled by societal pressures and expectations.
